a woman was kicked off a United flight for complaining about being seated between "two big pigs"
`Oh my goodness, I don't know how I'm going to do this for the next four hours,' the unidentified foul-mouthed woman says. 'This is just impossible cause they're squishing me. Like, friggin' just unbelievable.
'I can't sit here because they're both so big on left and right,' she complains. 'I can't even sit here.'
She also jokes: 'At least they'll keep me warm.'
The media I've seen seem to be calling the lady who got caught in the middle "obnoxious" and siding with the passengers of size.
The passengers of size were traveling together (they're described in the media as "partners") and got the window and aisle seats, presumably in the hope that they'd have an empty seat between them.
Looking at the pic above, there's certainly no way that either fits into a coach seat, and on southwest, they'd have been required to buy 2 seats each because they take 2 seats each (to be fair, I think southwest refunds the cost of the second seat if the flight isn't full so the second seat would have been empty).
An unrelated person got assigned the seat between them, at which point most reasonable people would have said to the 3rd person, "we're together, would you sit in the aisle/window seat so we can sit together," but seemingly not these two.
